The 2018 Subaru Impreza is offered in four trim levels: 2.0i base, Premium, Sport and Limited when it arrives at Subaru retailers in Fall 2017.
The 2.0i starts with an extensive roster of standard features including a 6.5-inch multimedia touchscreen; Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™; power windows with auto up/down on both driver and passenger sides; 60/40-split fold-down rear seat; power door locks and side mirrors; multi-function display with fuel economy information; tilt and telescoping steering column; security system with engine immobilizer; carpeted floor mats; and more.
The Premium trim, priced from $21,295, adds new automatic headlight activation with windshield wiper operation along with SUBARU STARLINK™ Safety and Security features, 16-inch alloy wheels, the All-Weather Package featuring heated front seats, windshield, and exterior mirrors. Premium 5-door Imprezas also feature standard roof rails. Stepping up to the Premium trim also brings wider option availability, including a power moonroof and driver assist technology systems.
The Impreza 2.0i Sport, available in sedan and 5-door, delivers a more fun-to-drive performance feel thanks to exclusive suspension tuning, 18-inch machine-finish alloy wheels, standard STI® short throw shifter (for 5-speed manual) and Active Torque Vectoring. Subaru aimed for a new ride/handling balance benchmark in the compact segment. Sport models are priced from $22,095.
Exclusive exterior styling and features setting the Impreza Sport apart include standard LED daytime running lights (DRL), black-finish front grille, body-color rocker panels, and turn signal side mirrors. The Impreza Sport 5-door features gloss black rear gate trim, while the Sport Sedan has a rear trunk spoiler. Inside the Sport, unique black cloth upholstery is trimmed with red stitching, a motif that repeats for the steering wheel, gear shift, instrument panel, and door trim. The instrument panel incorporates exclusive Sport gauges and a Multi-Function Display.
The Sport comes well equipped, with upgrades over the Impreza Premium that include the SUBARU STARLINK™ 8.0-inch Multimedia system, and a harman/kardon® premium audio system is available. Keyless Access with Push-Button Start, aluminum pedals, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift handle, and a CVT shift boot round out the Sport’s enhanced standard equipment.
Subaru continues to elevate the status of the Limited trim for the 2018 Impreza. The exterior looks more upscale with LED headlights and distinctive “Konoji” LED daytime running lights (DRL) and standard 17-inch machine finished alloy wheels. Judicious use of exterior chrome trim and turn signal side mirrors add a touch of elegance. Limited trim Imprezas begin at $24,195.
The Limited’s leather trimmed interior features double stitching on the door armrests and instrument panel, and a 6-way power driver’s seat. Standard amenities include an automatic climate control system, leather wrapped steering wheel and shifter, Keyless Access with Push-Button Start and 8-inch color display. The exclusive instrument panel features a high grade instrument cluster with color LCD display and harman/kardon® premium audio is available. Models equipped with EyeSight also include High Beam Assist. The available navigation system features maps provided by TomTom.
The FB 2.0-liter 4-cylinder Boxer engine with direct fuel injection boosts both performance (now 152-hp vs. 148 previous version) and drivability. In highline trims, the Lineartronic® CVT (continuously variable transmission) features a 7-speed manual mode function with steering wheel paddle shifters that allow the driver to control the transmission via seven pre-set ratios. The 2018 Impreza achieves up to 38 highway MPG and more than 450 miles on a full tank making it one of the most fuel-efficient all-wheel drive vehicles sold in the U.S..
The EyeSight system includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Pre-Collision Braking and Lane Departure and Sway Warning. Blind Spot Detection with Lane Keep Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Steering Responsive Headlights, and High Beam Assist are also available. All 2018 Impreza models include, as standard equipment, front seat side impact airbags, side curtain airbags and a driver’s knee airbag.
The 2018 Impreza includes additional driver-assist technologies. Reverse Automatic Braking that can apply the vehicle’s brakes if an obstacle is detected while reversing is standard on the Limited trim equipped with EyeSight. A rear vision camera with steering lines display is standard on all models. A 4-way Tire Pressure Monitoring System that detects pressure drops at individual wheels is standard on Premium, Sport and Limited.
SUBARU STARLINK™ Multimedia systems offer the latest in digital music playing, Bluetooth® wireless capability, iPod® control, smartphone integration and more. The display screen acts as the display for the standard rear vision camera, and the top-level system includes navigation.
SUBARU STARLINK™ Connected Services comes with the Safety Plus package that offers SOS Emergency Assistance, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Automatic Collision Notification, Maintenance Notifications, Monthly Vehicle Health Report, and Diagnostic Alerts. This package can be upgraded to the Safety Plus & Security Plus package that adds Stolen Vehicle Recovery Service, Vehicle Security Alarm Notification, Remote Lock/Unlock, Remote Horn and Lights and Remote Vehicle Locator.
